Book Description

March 29, 1996 0521497256 978-0521497251 First
Conflict Over Convoys examines the Battle of the Atlantic from the perspective of Anglo-American diplomacy, deepening our understanding of Allied strategy, British industrial decline, and operations TORCH and OVERLORD. Britain's dependence on American ships and logistical support created controversy over the control of military strategy; victory in the Atlantic eventually allowed America to dominate Allied logistics diplomacy. Conflict Over Convoys shows how these tensions reflect the decline of British hegemony and America's rise to global influence.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"...this book is solid and well researched....Smith has used a wealth of private and public sources, mostly British, but many American as well, to buttress his story. He well illustrates the logistical problems of the alliance and the interaction between civilians and the military in achieving hard-fought consensus over military strategy during the war." The Journal of American History

"I highly recommend the book as a significant contribution to both military history and the history of the Second World War, its wide scope highlights a number of subjects....Smith's excellent footnotes and comprehensive bibliography will provide scholars with a valuable guide to future studies." Keith W. Bird, The Journal of Military History

"Overall this book is solid and well researched....Smith has used a wealth of private and public sources, mostly British but many American as well, to buttress his story.
